French Top 14 Semi Final highlights ahead of this weekend's Final

well done to both teams, very surprised at the Clemont/Toulon result as i thought Toulon have been quite poor this year when you consider the names on the team-sheet. Must be tough for Clermont to have missed out on both finals in their centenary year.

Highlights of Leinster's record breaking Heineken Cup final win over Ulster

the places i have seen have all said the second team to defend the title. totally agree about Kidney, i thought he should have gone even before the world cup, he is paralysing the national team

Awesome performance and team, Seán O'Brien was immense! Brad Thorn's trophy cabinet must be close to collapsing at this stage.

Tai Tuifua's dangerous flying tackle on Nicky Robinson

O Buzz i always love reading your comments, never a dull read. I nearly always disagree completely with what your saying, but interesting all the same. I personally wouldn't want to call Stephen Ferris a mud wrestling girl to his face, he was immense against the far tougher and better in every way SH Australians at the world cup.

As for the tackle, it looked fine to me, maybe a penalty but the player ducked into it

Kini Murimurivalu finishes off excellent Clermont full field try

i see what you mean, but as a burly prop myself i have a large amount of sympathy with forwards in those situations, as long as they don't interfere with the play until they are back in line with the rest of the defence.
its tough work chasing back when the fairies have made a quick break up field! :)

Kini Murimurivalu finishes off excellent Clermont full field try

me neither, when there is no ruck there is no offside line so alls fair for most of that build up play due to Clermont keeping it alive and not going to ground.

Fantastic try, great to see a back running it from beneath his posts instead of hoofing it up the field.

of course not, which brings up something i always wondered, if the referee immediately then sees a replay on the stadium screen can he change his mind? i presume he is not allowed.

i seem to remember in a leinster match in the aviva stadium, either the quarters of semis of the HC last year, Hines scored a perfectly good try but by the time the ref got into a position to see it it was held up and it wasn't given. later on i think he may have seen it on the screen because i seem to remember him apologising to Cullen about it. obviously a very different situation but your heart must drop as a referee if you see a blatant mistake shown in the big screen!

was the Habana try given? Freuen is looking awesome, looking forward to seeing him in the upcoming test series against Ireland.
